Show You is an immersive environment where photos from one's Instagram account are displayed dynamically through projection in a physical space. I aim to address self-reflection, photographic process, and nostalgia in this digital age, in an intimate space.
This is for my graduate thesis for NYU Tisch School of the Arts' Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) 2013.

Prior to entry, the visitor would log-in and allow the app to access their Instagram content. In a space reminiscent of a darkroom, the visitor will be prompted to "develop" an image from their Instagram feed as they would in a real darkroom. By gently moving the special print that is immersed in the pool, a randomized image from their Instagram account will appear on the print slowly, mimicking that magic moment in the darkroom developing process when the photographer first sees their image start to appear on print. The visitor would see the image(s) projected from underneath and through the water onto the print, refracted--"filtered". Prints hanging from a drying line adjacent/above will display their just-developed image temporarily.
